Zeb and Lagertha Duck are happy to return to the Littleton Museum.
We want to show you the 1890s Urban Farm today. The main building has an interactive area for young people, an art gallery and a nice gift shop. Leaving this main building, we first find this peacock with his feathers fully opened.
Isn’t he magnificent? We love him. This couple was returning from the garden heading for home.
We love their clothes. Ready to enter the Blacksmith’s Shop, this bat was on the door.
He was hard to see…brown bat on brown door. Inside, the Blacksmith showed us how he needed to heat iron in the fire, behind him. When the iron was hot, he put it in the vise so he could bend the hot iron.
After bending the iron the way he wanted it, he plunged the hot iron in a tub of water to cool the metal.
With this rod, he bent a hook at each end. Then he showed us this could be useful for hanging things. He put Lagertha’s mom’s hat on the hook.
Zeb and Lagertha made another new friend today.
We like him and he likes the Colorado Traveling Ducks. This farm has a nice cow.
Isn’t that a great windmill in the background? Passing a storage shed, we liked these milk cans.
They are rather comfortable for ducks. The farmer’s house is very nice.
This stove is a little different than ours. Remember there is no electricity, so the part we are sitting on holds the wood.
When the wood is burning, the heat goes into the oven and also causes the stove top burners to heat. This is really nice. But our moms say they like todays gas and electric stoves better for cooking. The dining room looks nice.
Mom especially likes the glass china cabinet. You can see people in the living room, playing the piano. Here we are on a small table.
Notice the wood burning stove here. This was the source of heat for part of the house. We hope you will visit the Littleton Museum. It is one of the top 10 local history museums in the United States. It is also one of 700 museums to be fully accredited by the American Association of Museums. And perhaps the most impressive statistic, the Littleton Museum is one of 140 members of the Smithsonian affiliates. What a great museum. Yesterday we showed you the new piglets on the farm. Today we want to show you the baby geese.
We just love baby animals. There is so much more to see on each farm. We hope to see you at the Littleton Museum soon.
